Exchange rate decision

I have a life policy in South Africa that can be paid out now or in 2021.

We live in the United Kingdom.

Exchange rate decision 3

We are completing on the sale of one of our London houses and should have the funds in our UK bank on Monday.

We want to buy a property in Spain in the next couple of months, probably costing around 250,000 EUR.

Given the uncertainty re rates owing to the referendum we are thinking that it would be a good idea to transfer 200,000 EUR to our Spanish bank account next week.

Would you agree?

And, if we wanted to use your service, how do we proceed?
